events go today. remember those killed in benghazi in libya. we know the name sean smith. other man, chris stevens, held in very high regard from all of his colleagues. martha: tragic and violent death in benghazi. continuing coverage on all this on "happening now" starts right now. we'll see you here tomorrow. jenna: thank you, bill and martha. we start off with this fox news alert on the fallout on deadly attack on americans in the middle east. levens years to the day from 11. that is important as as we continue to explore the story i i'm jenna lee. jon: is the timing more than a coincidence? i'm jon scott. the white house ordered beefed up security at diplomatic posts around the world after an angry mob goes on a rampage in benghazi, libya. firing machines guns and rocket propelled grenades. it was outraged over an film from by an american that insults the prophet muhammad. it killed the ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. stevens becomes the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in more than three decades. libya not the only scene of violence directed at am
an angry mob goes on a rampage in benghazi, libya. firing machines guns and rocket propelled grenades. it was outraged over an film from by an american that insults the prophet muhammad. it killed the ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. stevens becomes the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in more than three decades. libya not the only scene of violence directed at americans. hours before equip -- egyptian rioters scaled the wall the embassy in cairo pulling down the american flag and replacing it with at black flag similar to the one used by al qaeda. president obama condemned all the violence moments ago. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence, none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. jon: so where does the story go from here. greg palkot is following for it live from london. greg? >> reporter: we're getting more and more information a
with the attacks against two u.s. diplomatic compounds overseas. first libya where militants staged a protest outside the u.s. consulate in ben za lee leading to clashes with security forces and the death of a security department officer. >>> the other powder keg is in cairo where several men managed to scale the walls of the u.s. embassy. take a look at this. they tore down all the american flags. ian lee is live from cairo this morning. i want to start with what has caused all this outrage. >> reporter: well, zoraida, it focuses around a film. and the film is very amateurish. it's a mishmash of clips. it is really incoherent, i have watched the clip, but it has a lot of things the muslims would find offensive about their prophet. so this is what sparked the clashes that we saw last night when thousands of people gathered outside the u.s. embassy where a handful of protesters actually breached the embassy compound, tore down the american flag like you just saw and ripped it apart. and these protesters are also calling for more protests against the u.s. embassy. a question we are wondering is
happened in cairo and libya, which we're going to talk more t i a moment. what is your reaction to how this seems to be escalating? >> i think the thing that strikes me the most is that at least in the libyan government, you have a real sense of people apologizing and people trying to prevent it from happening again. trying to crack down the perpetrators. in egypt, you have a government that is waffling. hasn't been living out to its responsibilities to protect people and it has been appealing to the crowds. >> we have ian as well. what can you tell us is happening on the ground right now in cairo outside the u.s. embassy? >> reporter: right now, we have protesters and police squaring off, molotov cocktails, throwing between the protesters and the police. not many protesters, but definitely enough to create a large disturbance and we're seeing the two go head to head. these are definitely more your hard core protesters that you see that are willing to go up into the front lines and really go in and attack the police, erin. >> and i know you were reporting last night, there had been fla
of the siege there yesterday in benghazi, libya, that left four americans dead. including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in the last three decades and only the sixth in the entire history of american diplomacy. tonight we're learning that his death and the deaths of three of his staffers may have come not at the hands of a random mob of islamic fundamentalists who were riled up by a shadowy anti-muslim youtube film, instead, sources say that a pro-al qaeda group is the key suspect now and a senior u.s. official says american surveillance drones are expected to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missiles have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may b
force to get rid of moammar gadhafi, to help libya stand up as it moved towards elections, as it tries to start anew. i think there's going to be a lot of gut checking right now about how the u.s. wants to proceed. not just with libya. but with a lot of countries in the middle east. i mean if you look at the islamic wave that has swept the middle east in terms of these revolutions, the u.s. was very apprehensive, that we are going to support democratic movements. but they also said, secretary clinton has also said that an election does not a democracy make. and so these countries are not going to necessarily hold up to their end of the bargain. there are diplomatic conventions about protecting u.s. facilities. about holding to democratic values. and you saw some statements coming out of the libyan interior ministry right now blaming the united states, in fact, for something like this. i think thers going to be a lot of, you know, the u.s. is really going to hunker down and think about how they want to proceed now. not just in libya but in the whole region. >> elise, this is brooke. let
and began building relationships with libya's revolutionairies. he risked his life to stop a tyrant and gave his life trying to help build a better libya. the world needs more chris stevens. i spoke with his sister, ann, this morning, and told her that he will be remembered as a hero by many nations. sean smith was an air force veteran. he spent ten years as an information management officer in the state department. he was posted and was in libya on a brief temporary assignment. he was a husband to his wife, heather, to whom i spoke this morning, and he was a father to two young children, samantha and nathan. they will grow up being proud of the service their father gave to our country, service that took him to baghdad and finally to benghazi. the mission that drew chris and sean and their colleagues to libya is both noble and necessary. and we and the people of libya honor their memory by carrying it forward. this is not easy. today many americans are asking indeed, i asked myself, how could this happen? how could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from des

an emotional service at joint base andrews for the arrival of the bodies of the four americans killed in libya. the u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens, information management officer sean smith and security personnel glen doherty and tyrone woods were honored and remembered. president obama spoke about the them, calling them heros who gave their lives for our country. >> they had a mission, and they believed in it. they knew the danger, and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. >> we'll have much more on the service coming up but first the latest on the wave of protests. joining us arwa damon and ben wedeman. arwa, what's going on in benghazi right now? >> reporter: well, the situation is pretty tense. just about every single libyan that we have been speaking to of course expressing their horror, their outrage about tuesday's attack, saying this most certainly is not indicative of how libyans themselves feel but also really wanting to see their own government begin to take control, begin to rein in these various militias. the government for its pa
the attack that killed four americans including the top u.s. diplomat in libya was planned in advance. we're also talking with the people behind the controversial anti-muslim film igniting protests that the attackers may have used for cover. we're also watching an important political dimension to this story. mitt romney's immediate criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our
stationed there, believed in there, there was a piece of paper that had scrawled across it "libya is so important." it was a real chilling, somber experience to be walking through it. and one also, though, must point out at this stage that the attack that took place did not just happen at this one location. after personnel were evacuated from this compound, they were then taken to a safe house where we are being told a short while later that location, too, coming under attack. so this really is putting a lot of questions out there, first and foremost of course the capabilities of the libyan government but also the questions to whether or not the u.s. underestimated the threat that it faces here. libyan security officials have been telling us that for months now they've been warning the united states about this growing extremist threat and that they have been growing ever more concerned about how little control they actually themselves have over the situation. >> arwa, please be careful over there in benghazi. we'll stay in close touch. arwa damon, one of our courageous journalists. the
a telemarketer. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> jennifer: the fiery attacks in libya that killed the american ambassador and three diplomat there is were quickly followed by fiery political rhetoric here at home. ambassador j. christopher stevens and three other u.s. officials were killed last night. details about the attacks are still coming in, but here is the latest of what we do know. back in july an incendiary ridiculous movie about muslims was released reportedly by a guy named sam sam sam bacile. he claims to be an israeli. it's not clear who he is, whether he is an israeli and whether a guy named sam bacile exists. but it was so offensive that the grand musti of jackpot condemned it. and roughly 2,000 demonstrators assembleed around the u.s. embassy in cairo. the diplomatic workers inside that embassy saw this protest developing and they understandably were worried about their safety by this situation that was developing. they calmed them down saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we c
a.m. in cairo, the situation there remains very, very tense after the deadly attack in libya president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the
's tough. my job is to till the truth. in libya, 52-year-old christopher stevens, the american ambassador to that country was murdered last night along with three other american citizens. fox news has obtained information that those killings were apparently planned. not a spontaneous demonstration. but in egypt the situation was very different. as hundreds of muslims attacked the u.s. embassy because some crank here in america put out an anti-muslim video. because of the internet, that kind of stuff goes worldwide very quickly and the video gave those nuts in cairo an excuse to turn violent. to try to head that off, the u.s. embassy there issued a statement saying quote: the embassy of the united states and cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religion is just feelings of muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions, unquote. again, that statement was issued before, before the american embassy was attacked last night. now, as talking points stated yesterday, muslim fanatics will use any excuse to attack not only americans but an
through where things are beginning with libya. where this appeared to begin. what do we know about the derivation of these protests and what caused it? >> i think right now, the administration has backed off -- initial impression this might be connected with al-qaeda. there are reasons we can go into why that was a plausible conjecture. it appears to have been it was a group, unlike al-qaeda is not a transnational group. it is a libyan extremist islamist, armed group. therefore, very dangerous to libya. and from everything we can tell, they either opportunistically seized on this or caused it to happen. it's quite different from cairo in the sense it's not even clear there was a spontaneous gathering of a crowd there at all. clearly, there was a decision at some point by ansar says is a rogue group. there was a decision to use the incident as a kind of cover to carry out what appears to have been a pre-existing plan to destroy the consulate. i doubt they knew the ambassador was there. >> eliot: because there were rock
of grief. our most urge vent -- urgent order of business is now is to ensure our citizens in libya and egypt and elsewhere across the world are safe. americans look to the government in libya and egypt and elsewhere to meet their responsibilities in this regard. we also look to the libyan government to ensure that those responsible for yesterday's attack in benghazi are swiftly brought to justice. in all of these critical tasks we are confident our government will provide all necessary assistance and support. yesterday's attacks are an important reminder so many of american civilians and diplomats and development professionals are risking everything, everything, to advance our nation's interests and values abroad. we must do everything in our power to ensure their security. at the same time, our thoughts turn to broader concerns. the morning of our fallen friends -- mourning of our fallen friends and how we as a nation should respond to these tragic events. one of my most memorable meetings with chris steeives was last april in benghazi. as envoy to the libyan opposition chris had
attacked our people. >> as the u.s. mourns the death of it was a massacre to libya christopher stevens, demonstrators in yemen stormed the u.s. embassy there, protesting an american-made film than a credit me profit mohammed. we will go to yemen and egypt where protests have entered a third day. then to one of the world's leading islamic scholars, tariq ramadan on "islam and the arab awakening." >> if you look at the situation in tunisia and egypt, corruption, poverty, unemployment -- many people who were visiting egypt are dealing with the media saying, there is something not going right. the situation is very bad. we knew something could happen. >> as new census figures show 46,000 americans -- millions of americans are in poverty, we will speak with tavis smiley and cornel west. >> inequality, the top 1% got 93% of income in 2010. income. wealth. that is morally obscene. it is an ethical abomination. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. protests are spreading in the middle east over u.s. made film c
